3D model, 100 mile cycle and Penny Pots – so many different ways to fundraise

String Art, bag packing and chocolate reindeers – Holly has done a lot!

Who knows what pin/String art is?  I certainly didn't until I read how Holly started her fundraising!! When we were first approached about going to Peru I was ‘nerve-cited’ (both nervous and excited at the same time)! I never been away for this long before and without my parents. I’m really excited now as we fast approach the trip and cannot wait to experience everything Peru has to offer. To raise my first amount I made pin/string art (as pictured)....

Gemma from Camps HQ remembers being in our highest Camp in Ecuador

I had never been to South America until October when I was lucky enough to spend a week visiting our camps in Ecuador.

Jessica has gone international with some of her fundraising!

When I first heard about Camps International, my friend's older sister started her fundraising almost three and a half years ago.

When the expedition to Costa Rica was first announced I had an overwhelming buzz of anticipation and excitement because I'd been waiting,  rather impatiently, to sign up. I was a bit nervous about...

Although I then started to realise what...

Adela loves travel and her eyes were opened on her visit to Tanzania

Before starting at Camps I had spent six months travelling South East Asia where I saw and experienced some amazing things, however, none of it compared to my week in Tanzania. There’s something extraordinarily unique and enchanting about this country that left me eager to discover more. The sites, smells, tastes and colours were enticing and the people I met were incredibly kind and welcoming. For example, throughout the week every school we visited had prepared a welcome song for...
